“I grew up with a certain image of myself. Looking back I realize that this image was mainly formed by other people’s opinions about me. Those opinions were mostly based on my behavior. For a long time I was holding onto this self-image thinking I knew who I was. Recently I have learned that I’m not necessarily my behavior. Yes I act a certain way and therefor people have an idea about who I am but it doesn’t mean that’s me. Ever since I figured out that I’m not my behavior I try not to be influenced by those opinions because behaviors can change, people’s opinions change and so can our self-image.”
